Re: A painful salvage to watch.
I found the statement about most in the Med not using a snub line curious. Why wouldn't they? And even if they don't why would one stop if they had the gear and had used it previously? Didn't Sea Dog cross the Atlantic from somewhere most do use snubs?
Of course, the lesson here is that your chain should be secured to the boat with a line that won't part until you cut it, right? One of the few places where we use Dyneema!
